The book of Judges gives us a glimpse of who Jesus is in the Old Testament (O.T).
In the book of Judges, which should more appropriately be named the “Book of failures”, we see seven distinct cycles of sin and salvation. People go away from God & God raised up Judges to save them (Judges 2:16).
The most pitiable statement that is accurately reflective of our current times is the very last verse in this book (Judges 21:25) which reads “And there was no king in those days and every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” We are in many case no different pursuing our desires and that which pleases our eyes (be it the pursuit of Power, Position, Prestige, Popularity or Pleasure). But a day of reckoning is coming when God will raise a Judge whose name is Jesus Christ who will arrive as the King of kings and the Lord of lords and judge in righteousness (Rev 19:11) for He is the King of righteousness (Hebrews 7:2)
In Judges, Jesus is a Righteous Judge.
